Room In Our Hearts is a nonprofit organization located in the hometown of James and Trevor van Riemsdyk. This nonprofit is dedicated to helping low-to-moderate income families whose homes have been affected by crisis. Our mission is to redecorate one room in these households from inception to completion in the most sustainable and creative way at no cost to them. The room of their choice includes furniture, artwork, home décor and small comforts of home from recycled, repurposed and refashioned items that are unique and special. New items are used as an alternative. For the past four years we have dedicated a lot of our efforts to victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Room In Our Hearts identifies and helps people struggling to have a home again after a crisis by redecorating one room. The sense of having one space finished and ready for relaxation and enjoyment can positively impact feelings of grief and trauma and provide a renewed spirit. Room In Our Hearts aids in the process of renewal.
